Na'aouill School* lu I4»l>. Frances Power Cobbe’s recent works on It- I aly contain a great amount of valuable inl'or- j mat ion, evidently derived Irom authentic i sources, showing the rapid progress of the I country under the new order of atfaiis. The j following facts respecting the development of a free school system are drawn from the rec ord of her observations, and answer most elo quently Mazzini's impracticable tirade in the I last Atlantic. Tlve government which has adopted these enlightened measures is not re actionary. The prominence given to normal ■ schools is a noteworthy feature of the system • The new kingdom of Italy has crowned it sell with glory by its efforts to establish a universal system ot education lor all classes of its citizens. Not the army even, on which the whole unity of the kingdom depends, has tak en a more promiiunt place no its care. There were nineteen universities in Italy m the old times. It would have been better to consolidate them into one or two institutions; but local jealousies make such a step imprac ticable. No material change has been made, therefore, in the universities. The total nuni lier or students attending them, in 1864, was 6,270. In addition to these universities, there are throughout Italy various institutions for tiie higher clats of instruction, lyceums and technical schools. Normal schools have been established and are the best guaranties that cau be given that the government has taken a long look ahead, and intends to effect a deep and complete re form. Till of late yeare the whole education al system of Italy w as in the hands ot the church, and so long as this state of things continued it was hopeless to expect the youth of the country to erow up with liberal opin ions. It is so yet to a great extent, and unavoidably, owing to the lact that lay teach ers, elsewhere so common, had been strictly excluded from Italy. In 1868, out of U^o.i masters and 7,664 mistresses of elementary schools, 0,378 were ecclesiastics and 1,100 were nuns. ... There are now 31 normal scuooisior males and l‘J lor females in existence in Italy, with over 2,503 pupils, each of whom re ceives an annual - pension” from the* govern ment of about fifty dollars in gold. In addi tion to these institutions there are 40 Sarnie Magistrate—ten for the training of masters, thirty for mistresses—in the Sardinian states, which were established in spite ot the church previous to the year 1809, aud which are still maintained. They help to increase the cum ber of teachers, which is still inadequate to the demand. Iu each normal school there are thrte professors, with salaries respective ly of 2,200 francs, 1,800 francs, and 1,500 franc3. In each female normal school there is an additional mistress charged with the mor al care of the pupils. These pupils are in structed in the an of teachi ng the Italian lang uage aud rules of composition, geography and natural history, arithmetic and elements of geometry, the principles ot physical science aud elements of hygienics, caiigraphy, draw ing and choral singing. The young men are taught gymnastics and military exercises, and the young women needlework, in addition.— These normal schools are greatly inferior to ours, but they are avast advance on anything that Italy has hitherto seen. The elementary schools are the great glory of the new government. m loo*, i-ese bcuooIs contained 800,000 pu pils, of whom 452,000 were boys. There were 21,857 teachers, male and female, or about one to every forty pupils. Out of 7,730 com munes, 7,390 had schools,while the total num ber of schools was 21.250 or nearly three schools for each commune, two for boys and one for girls. Thus there are onlv 340 com munes unprovided with schools, half of which are in Naples and Sicily. The total number of pupils forms one twentieth part of the ag gregate population. Vet the proportion differs wideiy in uid'erent provinces. In Liguria and Piedmont, tor example, there is one scholar to eleven^ of the population, whereas iu Sicily and Naples there is only one in seventy-iive. I- j, „nJy onu jn ,.very 200 females who attend school. are divided into lower and higi.er, aud the course in each lasts lor two yta.s. With tew exceptions all the teachers are paid by the communes to which they be long aud by whom they are appointed. The law requires the communes to provide gratu itous instruction for both boys aud girls, and when any commune is too poor to support such a burden the government grants subsidi ary assistance. In 18(13 half a million of dol lars in gold was thus appropriated by the na tional government. Inspectors in each prov ince report on the carrying out of the law.— Instruct on is entirely gratuitous in all these lower and upper schools. lulaut schools and evening adult schools have been established In diilerent parts of Italy. Iu Genoa, tor instance, there are tour inlant schools, with one hundred pupils; and in the Genoese district there are thirty-two thousand pupils. Migoiry in liqDtilM. The BuHal of the English Minister—Reprehen sible Conduct of the Papal Nuncio and Bishop of Quito—Action of the American Minister. The Cincinnati Gazette states that private letters received in Columbus, Ohio, from Qui to, Equador, give the details t.T an occurrence there which has excited considerable indigna tion on the part of the foreign as well as many of the native residents of that place. Mr. Neale, the British Minister, died there early last month, and the Papal Nuncio relused to allow the remains to be interred in Ecuador, claiming that the consecrated ground of the’ cemeteries could not be polluted by the burial of a heretic. The civil Government took an opposite position, and ordered the customary respect to he shown the deceased. Mr. Neale’s son preferred, however, to have the body taken to u vault in one of the churches, for the pur no ■ • of being embalmed and then seni to Eng land. -*.„e funeral services took place, and the pro cession, cousisliug ot the diplomatic corps, sev eral members of the Ecuadorian government a company of soldiers and others, had reached the gate to the church, when the Nuncio and the Bishop of Quito Ordered it to proceed no further. The Minister of Foreign Atftils at once ordered the soldiers to tear down the wall in the rear of the church and convey the remains to the vault by that route. Our rep resentative, Mr. Coggshall. backed by the en tire corps, protested againstsuch a proceeding, declaring that it would be an insult to the memory of the deceased Minister and the civ ilized world, and demanded that they should be allowed to proceed through the proper en trance to the church or not at all. The Ecua dorian Minister then announed thrt the will of the government should be enforced, and dif rected the troops to clear the way tor the pro cession. The Church authorities offered no further resistance, and the body was placed in the vault. As the funeral party was returning from the church they were met by an aid-de camp, bearing a message from the President, promising a military force sufficient to have proper respect shown to the remains of the de ceased. The Telegraph Monopoly.—The official statement of the Western Union Telegraph Company shows that the gross receipts for the ■ingle month of November reached five hun dred and seventy-one thousand dollars, the net earnings out of which amounted to nearly a quarter of a million. These enormous profits are secured by the heavy rates charged upon messages, the company having shut out com petition by buying up all opposing lines. The New York Herald says that the press, which Buffers more than private individuals through this monopoly, will probably before long con struct independent telegraph lines for news paper business, by which a saving of fifty to seventy-five per cent, in the cost of reports can be made. These lines will be open for the transaction of private business as far as practi cable, and as they will convey messages at the lowest possible rates, they will destroy the present monopoly and insure better attention and more reasonable charges to the public. A sensible and practical suggestion, which we trust the press will not lose time in acting upon Tbc Auburn Murder. The Lewiston Journal of Saturday gives an important fact bearing on the evidence against tho Frenchman attested on Thursday: A teamster Thursday morning, 17tli instant was passing down near West Auburn from the direction of Minot to this cily with a load ot wood. When he reached a point j ust above the house where the murder was committed he met a man coming from the direction of the fated house, and going toward West Minot.— The man was apparently running or walking very rapidly. It was snowing at the time, aud the teamster who was muffled up aud laciug the storm, merely noticed that the man was a very short man and that he seemed to be in a great hurry. The teamster visited the prisoner in jail Fri day, aud states that the man he met on that fa tal morming resembles in size the prisoner who.it will bo remembered, is but four feet eight inches high—a remarkably short man.— Ihe morning was dark, and of course the teamster did not see the stranger’s lace, and can only identify him by his stature, which in this case, is a marked point. Tite Tinas ani> tiie Coppkuheaiib The awful tortuosity of intellect wh*ht Copper head Ultimately reaches may he discoverd in the lact that the World is out in defence oi the Turks as against the Christians of Crete who are now in revolt. It fires away at a Boston Pliilhellene for "blackguarding the Mosb ms ” and quotes an ancient writer who denounced the poor Cretans as "always liars.” It draws a parallel, os rather a contrast, between the Turks and the Puritan Fathers ol New Eng land, greatly to the disadvantage of the latter; and, alter Charging the founders of Massachu setts with a lot of horrible atrocities, says; ‘The Turks have done nothing of this sort.” in thus elevating the barbarous, polygamous aud ty rannical Turk above Crot-u and Puritan, the World shows tho tendency of that egregious Copperheadism which it supports. It is not long since the same journal advocated the eat iug of horseflesh. It will presently be out in 1?,vo£ UJ “aunibalism and Muuibo-Juuibo.— N. Y.

Tribune.] The American Colony at Jaffa—the Scheins Likely to be a failure—Distress and Mortality among the Colonists— Complaints against President Adams. Beirut, Syria, Dec. 21,1866. The exciting topic in Syrian circles still con tinues to be the colony. The financial crisis in Beirut, the meteoric shower of last month, the new oppressions and exactions of the Turkish Government seem for the time for- j gotten, and all eyes are turned to the strange phenomenon of the American invasion of the I sacred soil of Palestine. It is curious to hear the questions ot the Syrian population as t-o the origin and objects of this remarkable colo ny. Some inquire whether they are Chris tians or Jews. When told they are Christians they ask whether they are Protestants or Greeks, for, say they, they baptize by immer sion as do the Greeks, and yet reject infant baptism wlrch the Greeks accept. Auothcr will say, we have beard of Moslems turning Christians, ot Greeks turning Protestants, Maronites turning Greeks, of iDruses turning Moslems, but we never before h°ard of Ghris tians turning Jews for we understand that these “Amerieauees” say that they are ot the children of Ephraim, and, therefore, lineal de scendants of Abraham. Others ask what their business is, for. say they, we hear that some arc blacksmiths, some arc carpenters, farmers, masons, doctors and clergymen. One mail asked me whether it was true, as lie had heard, that they were Southern Rebels expelled by the Government of tlie United States for trea son. Another man came to me and remarked that the conduct of the colonists filled him with amazement, for, said he, the older American residents in Syria have a high character for prudence and caution in all business affairs, but those colonists have expended au enormous sum of money iu purchasing Land at au exor bitant price, whereas by leasing tlie land for a term of years they could have saved their capital to expend on improvements and the support ot the powerful. Tho9eof us who know Syria and the Syrians, and have lived long in this trying climate, foresaw from the outset that an enterprise of this magnitude, based ou religious enthusiasm and engineered by a man not characterized by broad aud liberal views and who was inexperi enced in Eastern life and unwilling to ask or accept advice, must end in inevitable disaster. Letters and protests ot the strongest charac ter were sent by various parties in Syria and Palestine, both to the public journals in the United States and to the Home Government, setting forth the difficulties in the way, and the certain disappointment awaiting all who should embark in the enterprise, and begging all so ber-minded men and women to count well the cost before risking their earthly all in such a Quixotic scheme. The State Department communicated some of these letters to Presi dent Adams, the ruling spirit of this strange religious sect, before tlie departure of tlie colo ny from the United States. The reply of Pres ident Adams was in the form of ridicule, and the language of his newspaper at the time, with reference to the United States Govern ment, was what might have been expected of a Brigham Young or a Dauite elder. The colo uy came, aud saw, and it remains to be seen whether they will conquer or be conquered.— The last news, however, from Jaffa, indicates that the word “vici” will never be written on President Adams’s escutcheon.— The plain fact is that the colony is already breaking up. In three months’ time one-tenth of their whole number have died. Of tile sur vivors, a large part are iu actual suffering.— Dissatisfaction, of wbichl spoke in my last, lias greatlv increased,and, as 1 then predicted, has necessitated the interposition ot the United States Consul at Jerusalem. This gentleman, Col. Beaubocher, lost a foot in Grant’s army, at the battle of Cold Harbor, and, though but four years a resident of the United States, he spent three of them in fighting for Union and b'reedom. He is a brave and honorable man, and of a generous aud humane disposition, and American citizens in the United States who may be so unfortunate as to have friends and relatives in the Ephraimitie fold of President Adams may rest assured that our Consul at Jerusalem will leave nothing undone to fur nish all the assistance and relief in his power to those who would otherwise suffer from want of the necessaries of life. During the past week this worthy gentleman has spent several davs in Jaffa receiving the evidence of these poor people with regard to their wrongs and sufferings. It fills one with sorrow and indig nation to sec his own countrymeu in a foreign iauu, wnere the climate, the elements, aud the native population are equally to be dreaded, made the victims of the rashuess aud ineffic iency—not to use a stronger term—of their own leader aud spiritual head. It makes us who are Americans, and arc proud of our coun try ami our name, long to bide our heads with shame when Turks and Arabs report to us with a sneer the scandalous stories which are current with regard to the state of things in the Jaffa Co ony. I hope to send you in my next letter a detailed report ol the testimony iu eiiis most melancholy affair. Many oi tlie min ifies are crying for bread aud begging lor Gov ernment aid to secure them some cheap means of transport itiou home to tlieir native land.— There has been disgracetul and outrageous mismanagement somewhere. Who is respon sible tor all this wrong aud Buffering will ao pear whenever the report of Consul ffcaubouoh er shall be made public. No one can envy him this most invidious task. No complaints cau be more bitter, and no dissatislactiou more in tense, than those arising among the disap pointed victims of a colonial scheme in a laa distant land; and I will bespeak for our Con sul the sympathy and forbearance of all up right men, in ins endeavors to secure even handed justice lor the members of this Colony. The best and kindest tiling he can do will he to advise them to return to the United States as soon as possible, aud if their means prove to be actually exhausted, it will become tue impera tive duty of our Government to provide them with the necessary transportation, a- is done iu the case of sailors shipwrecked on foreign snores. it has been distinctly announced by mem bers ol the colony id Jaffa that many more of their co-religiomsts are expecting soon to join them, li is to bo hoped that sober reason may reach them before they take so rash a step. In the name of our common humanity, I entreat the editors of your journal to lilt up the voice oi warning. At least, let me urge any who cherish this plan to wait long enough to hear both sides of the question, it is too serious a business to be passed lightly over. It is serious lor the deluded victims who eoine toPale tine expecting to tiud it a land flow ing with milk and honey, and it will be a serious business tor our government, if obliged to lurnisb borne transportation to a starving colony of its citizens in a foreign land. That a colony founded on sound principles and managed with justice and economy, might suceed at Jaffa, is possible. The sol) is rich, the fruits of the earth are abundant and although there are many poor throughout the East, f have never heard ol a single man w ho starved to death, and it can only be through folly or knavery that a company of able-bodied New-Englanders should he brought to such extremity in so short a period of time. One explanation is that the whole community paid over their entire property into the hands of their religious leader or President,as be styles himself. He has invested it in a way to suit himself, and while the colony have posessiou of a large tractof land, and have built several frame bouses, they have not the means on band for supporting their famihes until the next har vest, wuich is still five mouths distant. Presi dent Adams ought to be obliged to raise the means an once for supporting these 50 families if it should become necessary for that end to sell a large portion of their property. One part of the colonists throw the blame on Mr. Lowenthal, the United htates Vicc-Con sui in Jaffa, and another part blame President Adams. It is, to say the least, uufortnnate that an American citizen could not have been found to take the office of Vice-Consul at Jaff a at this critical juncture. But none were to be found, and the Consul at Jerusalem, to whom the Vice-Consul at Jaffa is subordinate, bad to make the best use of the material on the ground. Mr. Loweuthal may be a g >od man ior all I know, but his official position will not shield him from a searching examination if the evidence in the case snail require it. Consul Beauboucher will See that justice is done, come what may,-and it is to be imped that the government at home will abundantly sustain nim at this hour of complication such as no Consul in the East has ever before been called to deal with. The Publications of the Italian Gov ernment.—The Italian Government, says a Florence letter writer, is one of the greatest publishers in Europe, and this is the time of year when volume after volume of imposing magnitude, ample margin and portly type issue from its press. Official persons, senators, dep uties anu others to wLoin all these publications are sent, need a sat of bookshelves on purpose lor their storage. The tliiug is done iu a most liberal way, with a great profusion ol paper, and it is said that about 6,000,000 francs are an nually expended in govern ment printing and publishing. Possibly means might be found of economizing a considerable part of this sum with much less detriment to the public sen ice than to the protits oi a few individuals. The superabundance of the distribution defeats its object. People have not time to read these cartloads oi official literature—I'esDatches, re ports and statistics of every kind, and on all imaginable topics, The Foreign Office Green book is a ponder ous quarto of eight hundred and sixty pages, the Home Department has put forth a pink volume of dmiensious more modest; Public lustructiou comes out in blue to the extent of more than live hundred pages. From the Koyai Printing office lias also proceeded a supplementary budget lor the year now com mencing, in which is included the estimated revenue and expenditure of tho recently ac quired Venetian provinces. Sunken Wreck Discovered.—Our cor respondent at Kcnnebunkport, informs us that some fishermon of Cape Porpoise fell in with some parts of a wreck, which they suppose to be a sunken brig or large schooner, as Captain Payson Huff, of sehoouer Itescuc, got most if the main gaff. He hooked on to the main aoom hut did not succeed iu getting that, as it was fast to the sunken wreck. The wreck lies about five miles distant from Cape Porpoise, the light bearing NNW. From the appearance of tho gaff and the blocks that were attached to it, the supposition is, that the wreck was a new, or nearly new vessel. The Aubuun Tragedy.—We are informed that some three weeks since, a foreigner, answering the description ot the man arrested as being the murderer ol the two ladies at Au burn was in this city, endeavoring to sell paint or coloring matter, for coloring cloth &c He was quite ragged, and some portion of his clothing < ore marks of red paint. He said he was going to Lewiston and enquired the route thither. The police picked him up drunk in the street one day and took him to the lockup where he was confined over night and releas ed, sober, in the morning. Since then nothing has been seen of him here. —Mrs. <T W.

Joseph was put under bonds for $300 to appear at the April torm of the Su preme Judicial Court. Park or Square? As this question seems to have heen foreclos ed by the action oi the City Council, a further discussion may be irrelevant and useless. I will therefore only offer in aid of the argument on tho side of Square, the example of our prin cipal cities. In Philadelphia, where open areas are very numerous, 1 do not know of a single one which is called a Park. But on the con trary they have their Rittenhouse Square, Lo gan, Franklin, Penn, Washington, Independ ence and many others, uniformly and officially named Squares, either of which is much larger than our acre and a half Park. In New York they have their Hamilton Square, their Union, their Madison, their Stuyvesant, Tomkins, Manhattan and other Squares, and hut two or three spaces called Parks, only one of which, the spacious Central Park, is entitled to the name. In Boston they have the Chester, Black stone, Franklin and Worcester Squares, and no Park, unless it be one on the Neck, some times called Chester Park to distinguish it from Chester Square. But we are a great people here in Portland and magnify little things. Our acre lot is as good as anybody’s forty acres, and so we must have a Park, in spite of definition, usage and propriety. And then the name! the one which has been given to it, is common and common place. Is it in honor of President Lincoln, or our late esteemed fellow-citizen, Royal Lincoln, or, as some people may perhaps suppose, of Samuel Lineoln, who, before the fire, kept a grocery store on the corner of Franklin street, opposite the Suuare, on which he has since re-built a house? Why not take some historical name associated with our territory, other than that of an individual? If it is intended to honor the memory of President Liucoln by the application of his name, we doubt the good taste of following the prevailing mania of affixing the name of this beloved and lamented man to all objects, great and small, throughout our Northern land. Some of our people have a great fondness for innovation, as well as imitation. One instance of this kind was most happily rebuked when the proposition to change the fine and long es tablished name of Congress street into the in appropriate one of Broadway. But another proposition is made to change the name of Middle street into that of Maine street. This is more absurd than the other. This old name has stood lor one hundred and fifty years, has never been varied as some other streets have, and has become identified by the titles of land upon it, and dear from long usage. Let us not be drawn away from our ancient land-marks and our cherished associations by modem fan cies or servile imitation. How would a Bos tonian feel it the government of that city should propose to substitute for his boasted and belov ed Common, the name of some fanciful Park, or for his familiar Milk, Pearl, State, Tremout and Summer streets, other names which they might consider more musical in sound? Or a Londoner his Threadneedle stree, Picadilly and Strand? When a name has become by long use associated with our homes, our business, or our friendships, it ought not to be changed un less for some substantial reason; never foT fancy or whim. Let ns in these things hold on to the past, but not forget to make progress and im provement in things of a moral and vital im portance. • Portland Army and Navy Union.—The new hall of the Portland Army and Navy Union, In the 1st National Bank building, cor ner of Middle and Plum streets, will be ready for occupation, as is expected, about the middle of February, and it will be opened and dedi cated with appropriate services. Col. A. \V. Bradbury, of this city, will deliv er the dedicatory address, and David Barker, Esq., of Exeter, Penobscot county, will deliver a poem. Mr. Barker has written some stirring poems, one of which, ‘‘The Empty Sleeve,” will ever be remembered. Iu answering the appli cation of tho committee, to deliver a poem, he says: “You ask my terms. I have a recollection that, your beautiful city has been visited by God’s fiery angel; and also remember that the gallant army and navy have given me the rights I now enjoy, and also from the fact that (unlike the ancient poets) I have more money now than I can well take care of, 1 decline recompense.’ P. Y. M. C. A. Lectures.—It will be seen by the advertisement in another column, that the Rev. Dr. Tefft will deliver the eighth lecture of the course, in Free street Church, on Wednes day evening next. From the subject announced, and the known abilities of Dr. Tefft, the patrons of this course may expect an able and instructive lecture.— Our business men, old and young, and espec ially those who take an active interest in the material advancement of our State, should go and learn “ How to make the most of Maine.” The committee expect Rev. Mr. Bartlett will fulfil his engagement some time in February. Movements op Ocean Steamers.—Steam ship Peruvian, Capt. Ballantine, sailed from this port tor Liverpool at 2.15 Sunday after noon, w'.th eighty-five cabin and forty steerage passengers and a full cargo She was detain ed to await the arrival of the special train from Canada, which came in Sunday noon bringing sixty passengers and the mails. Steamship North American, Capt. Kerr, will sail from this port for Liverpool on Sat urday next. The steamer due from Liverpool this week, is either the Damascus or the Moravian—prob ably the former. Foreign Exports.—The total value of for eign exports from this port last week amount ed to §114,826.38. Included in the shipments were 8,473 box shooks, 1,800 shooks and heads, 1,934 pairs headings, 60 M hoops, 2,700 hrls of flour, 1,600 do oatmeal, 8,871 bush peas, 18,609 do oats, 73,515 lbs extract hemlock. 80,000 lbs oil cake, 30,123 lbs butter, 20,698 lbs bacon, 13,200 lbs wool, 13,135 lbs. pctasli, 3,270 lbs cotton, 5, 800 lbs rags, 8,468 bush barley, 180 oil hrls, 19 pkgs sundry mdse. Roguery.—Saturday evening two fellows called at the store of Mr. Stephen Hairis on Preble street and bargained for a quantity of tobacco and tea, which was put up for them.— Then they warned some flour; and while Mr. Harris had gone to the back part of his store to get a bag to put the flour in, the scamps seized the tobacco and tea and made off at a 2.40 pace. Members of the First Parish who were not present to contribute to the Wood Society yes terday, are invited to send their contributions through the Post Office or otherwise, to Sarn’l Eolfe, the Treasurer, or to W. Willis. There is great need of means to sustain the opera tions of the Society. Liquor Seizures.—Last Saturday the Dep uty Marshals seized small quantities of liquor in the shopt of Edward Brackett and George M. Stevens, on Federal street; also at Swasey’s billiard saloon and at the Groton House kept by G. D. Miller. “ Rachel’s Secret,” a very pleasantly told story, is published in pamphlet form, by Har per & Brothers, uniform with their Library of Select Novels, and may he had at the book store of Messrs. Davis Brothers. \\ ellcomk’s great German Remedy recom mends itselt to all who use it foi throat and lung difficulties. Thousands declare it superi or to any other. You will find it so by using Jan4—dlawti Theatre.—This evening the beautiful play of Jessie Brown will be performed, and the same play will be repeated on Tuesday even ing. It is an attractive play, and there is no doubt of its being handsomely performed by this company. THE STATE. —A note from tho postmaster at Sullivan, dated the 22nd, states that no mail had been received from the West at that office since the 10th inst. —The Shipbuilders’ Convention, which was to have been held at Augusta last week, lias been postponed till Wednesday, 30th inst., on account of the bad travelling. —The Bangor Whig learns that the trustees of the Maine Agricultural College at Orono will adopt Fred Law Olmsted’s plans for their buildings, and erect three or four moTO of mod erate size for the various uses of the institu tion. The annual revenue at six per cent., from the proceeds ot the sale of the public land grants, will he $23,520, more than the cost of sustaining any literary college now in the State. —The Belfast Age says fears are entertained for tho safety of brig Ocean Wave,Capt. J. S. Thombs, of that city. She was at Saltillo riv er, Ga., on the 26th ult., loaded with lumber for a foreign port. —We were repeatedly asked on Friday what grudge we had against the town of Wiscasset, a cruel compositer having made us say, in con nection with the burning of the poor house there, that unfortunately no other buildings took fire. We are shocked to see that the Ban gor Whig regards tho matter in the same heart less light. —The Machias Union informs us that the house of Mr. N. M. Gardner was destroyed by fire during the storm on the night of the 17th —the iamily escaping with only their night clothes. Several of the firemen had their ears and noses frozen, and only the strongest could endure the exposure. The fire took from a de fective chimney. Loss $6000. —During the storm of last week, three men started to walk from Augusta to Farmingdale. On the way they got separated, and one of them got so bewildered that for half an hour he walked round and round in one spot.

D., as Episcopal Bishop of Maine, which took place at Trinity Chapel in New York on Friday, was a very imposing service. The chime of bells were pealed for half an hour prior to the services, which began at eleven o’clock with the entrance of nearly a hundred choristers, chanting the sixth Psalm, “Quarn Dilecta.’’ These were followed by the officiating clergy men, including Bishops Potter of New York, Williams of Connecticut, Odenhcimer of New Jersey, Clarkson of Nebraska, and Randall, Missionary Bishop of Colorado. Among other eminent divines present were Drs. Dix, Wes ton, Vinton, McVicker, Barnard and Haight. Nearly all the prominent clergymen of the city were in attendance, and many also of high standing in the Church from Maine. The con gregation in attendance was large. After the saying of the morning prayer by tlie congrega tion, the choir sang the Venite of Tallis with fine effect, the entire orche tral fjrce of Trinity Church and the Chapel being engaged therein. The chant was followed by the reading of the Psalms appropriate to the day, and those by the singing of the Te Deum and the Jubilate following the communion service, the anthem of Handel solo, “How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of Peace and bring glad tidings of good things.” A discourse was then preached by Bishop Potter, from the text, “A city that is set upon a hill cannot he hid.” At the close of the sermon he addressed Dr. Nealy as follows: “Beloved Brother, when I speak of earnest work in the Church of God, I kn .w I speak to your heart. The people of this congregation, as does every flock to whom you have minis tered. bear testimony to your untiring faithful ness, to your piety and to your zeal. We now say to you, Come up higher! You succeed an amiable Christian Bishop; may yonr career prove as worthy as his. You have the confi dence and sympathies of all who know you. You will he at the extreme end ot the semi-cir cle of chief pastors. It will be of touching in terest to you to watch how one after another will drop from out that circle as you move to ward its centre. God help you through all that time, Good Christian, God shield you from all misrepresentation and calumny. God pre serve yon to the Church, an humble instru ment for its good and the glory of your God ” The preacher then gave the Bishop elect his blessing. At the conclusion Dr. Nealy advanc ed up to the sanctuary, where he was received by the Presiding Bishop. Certificates as to his worthiness for the high office were then read. The questions customary at Consecrations were put by the Bishop and answered after the manner of the service peculiar to the Episcopal Church. The Bishop elect had then placed upon him tho Episcopal Rohes, after which he knelt down amid his brother Bishops. The “Veni Creator” was then sung, with the re sponses, by the congregation and the choristers. The highly impressive ceremony concluded with tho usual auxiliary services, ritual and choral. “Charlie, my dear,” said a loving mother to a hopeful son, just budded into breeches, Charlie, iny dear, come here and get some candy.” “I guess I won’t mind it now, mother,” replied Charlie; “ I’ve got in some tobacco.” SPECIAL.
